‘Smart Home’ Set to Open in Chicago Museum

On the heels of Disneyland’s announcement that it is resurrecting the “House of the Future” at its theme park in California, Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry announced that it will launch a similar exhibit later this spring.

The exhibit, Smart Home: Green + Wired, Powered by ComEd and Warmed by Peoples Gas, will showcase the latest innovations in sustainable living and environmentally-friendly technology. The 2,500-square-foot home and surrounding gardens will feature energy-efficient heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, and earth-friendly components to create a healthy living environment.

The exhibit opens May 8, 2008 and runs through Jan. 4, 2009.
